S.M.A.C.K.s for Stepmoms: Teach your stepchildren something they don’t know.

28 10 2008

This month, teach your stepchildren something. Show them how you do your job. Take them to a museum so you both learn about a new topic. Read a chapter of a book to them before bed. Take them outside at night with a map of the stars and a flashlight. Do an experiment from a science book. Go for a nature walk with a guide who knows about plants and wildlife. Take a tour of a local manufacturing plant. Visit a greenhouse. Teach them a song you know. If they’re older, talk about what you’ve learned about your career or dating or college.

(I took my stepkids to see an Elvis impersonator to introduce them to the King’s music.)
